It appears that a new Public Enemy album is on the way. The album was supposed to be a secret, however, Spanish publication, Binuaral, published a story over the weekend spilling the beans on the project, which is slated to drop July 4.

HipHopDX confirmed the news with Chuck D, who is currently overseas touring with supergroup, Prophets of Rage (Cypress Hill’s B-Real, DJ Lord, Rage Against The Machine’s Tim Commerford, Tom Morello and Brad Wilk). The new PE album is called Nothing Is Quick In The Desert and will be available as a free download.

“The record business is appearing like a desert,” Chuck told DX about the album's enigmatic title. “But the music has a life if you look at it right.”

Nothing Quick In The Desert will be Public Enemy's thirteenth album and the group's first since 2015's Man Plans God Laughs.
